Fans of French high-perfumery house Henry Jacques know that the offerings by the house are special concoctions to be savoured. The pure essences of its Les Classiques range, for instance, are meant to be gently daubed on pulse points, and can each contain up to 250 different components for a complexity that you won’t find in typical spritz-and-go formulations.
Despite the house’s steep price tags that can go into the five digits, Henry Jacques devotees are unlikely to stop at just one bottle. For one, the essences can be easily layered to form your own unique scent. More importantly, as Henry Jacques CEO and daughter of the house’s namesake founder Anne-Lise Cremona once told us, “Scent should be treated like a wardrobe; you apply a perfume to fit your mood and the occasion.”
Now, the brand unveils a series of specially created boxes, or Les Boites a Parfums, for their customers to elegantly house their favourite fragrances. Available in taupe, brown, beige or pink, these boxes are made to hold (or showcase) three, six or 10 crystal flacons containing Henry Jacques’ Les Classiques or lighter Les Brumes perfumes, and are complimentary with the purchase of three, six or 10 fragrances.
Henry Jacques is located at Marina Bay Sands (L1-08A, Hotel Tower 2).
